Bob Corker said Trump had'publicly castrated Tillerson

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Sunday denied that Donald Trump's threat to tear up the Iran nuclear deal had weakened America's chance of reining in North Korea through diplomacy. And they feed on it.

Tillerson is also reported to have called Trump a "moron" and even had to call a press conference to quash rumours he was about to resign.

Tillerson did not deny it last week, and despite how much Jake Tapper pressed him on it this morning, Tillerson refused to "dignify the question".

"These are the games of Washington", Tillerson said. They're not helpful to anyone.

"You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice", Corker said Friday.

"Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said Trump's comments were the equivalent of castrating the secretary in public. Several top officials, including Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly are helping "separate our country from chaos", Corker said earlier this month.

At the very end of the clip, Tapper asked again if Tillerson was concerned about being "gelded" in front of the whole world.
